In April 2013, the Medicines Use Review (MUR) service aimed at helping people with respiratory conditions, who are taking multiple medications to manage their medicines more effectively, was introduced. The new service allows community pharmacists to review medication face to face with patients and offer their professional advice on how to best to manage prescribed medications.
The initiative was actively embraced by Contractors and pharmacy staff with over 800 community pharmacists attending the NICPLD facilitated MUR workshops in a 2 week period after Easter.
